Meantime

(Stillman/Allen)


Before I was born
A lot of things happened
A lot of things happened
But not to me
Before I was born
A lot of things happened
But I didn't happen to see

After I'm gone
A lot of things'll happen
A lot of things'll happen
Oh Lord, amen
Yes, after I'm gone
A lot of things'll happen
But I won't know about them

Cos it's the meantime, meantime
All they gave me is this in-between-time
For my lovin' and my livin'
I gotta do it in the time I've given
Meantime may mean nothin' to posterity
But in the meantime
Doin' nothin' sure is a-worryin' me

Before I was born
A lot of love happened
A lot of love happened
There is no doubt
And after I'm gone
A lot of love'll happen
That I'll be doin' without

Cos it's the meantime, meantime
All they gave me is this in-between-time
For my lovin' and my livin'
I gotta do it in the time I'm given
Meantime may mean nothin' to posterity
But in the meantime
Doin' nothin' sure is a-worryin'
The way the time's a-hurryin'
Meantime sure is a-worryin' me
Oh me, poor me
